Syllabus - Economics

General Information


Instructor: Connie Sutter-Roemer

Location: Room 11


Requirements: This course is required of all 10th grade students (.5 unit)


Texts:                                    Economics Today & Tomorrow by Roger LeRoy Miller

Basics of Foreign Trade & Exchange by The Federal

Understanding the Federal Debt & Deficit by The Federal Reserve Bank of New York


Course Description: This one semester course is an introduction on how the economy functions. Students study capitalism, supply and demand, inflation, banking, taxes, and other key economic issues.


Grading Scale: Grades will be based on daily assignments, projects, tests, and the final exam. NO extra credit will be given unless all regular work has been completed and turned in on time. Grades are the same as in my other classes.


Attendance: While students are allowed a certain number of absences (see student handbook), I would strongly discourage missing class. Attendance can affect student's grades since they would be missing lectures and class discussions (from which most assignments and tests are taken).
